If you are comfortable soldering small pieces, you could take the laptop apart all the way to the motherboard, and replace the jack. You can find them on Ebay for a few dollars. You should only choose this option if you have an understanding of electronics and a steady hand! Too much or misplace solder and you could easily fry your motherboard!

This will require either the replacement of the power connection by a competent board repair service or replacement of the motherboard

Possible suspects are:

3. Faulty main circuit breaker and or connections.
4. Faulty ignition coil and or connections.
5. Faulty spark plug, oil or gas fouled, wrong heat range or service type, wrong gap, loose in the cylinder head, broken electrode or insulator.
6. Faulty spark plug cables, leaking or broken, internal damage.
7. Faulty ignition module, switch, CKP, MAP, CMP, sensor and or any connector in the ignition circuit could have corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets

The charging light is blinking orange and blue, but is not charging.. what does that mean?

Since most newer lap tops and note books use Li-ion batteries, they (the BatteryPack) have a built in chip to keep the charger from over charging a depleted battery, one that has locked itself from being charged. This is a safety feature to prevent a fire from a hot battery that may be overcharged. This feature locks the battery when the internal resistance gets too high and the battery pack falls below 3 volts per cell.

Try this for laughs, take the battery out of the lap top and put it in your freezer for about an hour and then place it back in your machine and see if it will begin to charge. This works sometimes as the cold slows the charging down to where the battery may recover. However, it will still be a low use battery as over time they loose the ability to be recharged to a full 100%

The worst is that you may have to buy another battery. If you do avoid buying used batteries as some one else is trying to sell you their problem.

We got our grandson one of these last christmas and we lost the charger and I have found the charger now but, need directions how to charge it and where to plug it into? Please help with any...

Open the hood, and look for the battery. The battery has a blue connector that is connected to the Gator. You need to squeeze the plastic tabs on each side of the connector to separate them. The charger has a similar connector as the battery. Once you have the battery connector separated from the toy, plug the charger in to the wall and connect the charger to the battery by pushing the connectors together. Allow the battery to charge for about 18 hours for a full charge then remove the battery from the charger. The battery should be charged once a month to mantain the battery. People often forget to keep the battery charged once a month, otherwise the battery won't charge when the kiddies come to play. Hope this helps.

My Acer Extensa 5420 laptop won't charge. I t works but when I plug in the power cord it does not even say it's plugged in and it doesn't charge. The charge light won't even light up. What can I do?

Check there is a light comming on the charger pack, if there is you will need a new connector piece for the end on the power cable that plugs into the power socket on the lap top, plug the wire into the laptop and give a little wiggle to see if you can get the charger light on the laptop to light up. If you do then it will be the power socket on the laptop mother board, this requires the whole laptop to be taken apart in order to resolder the socket, your better off taking it to your local pc repair shop for this repair.

¿ tiempo de carga de la bateria en lap top por primera vez?

Sorry, espanol no hablo

You must let the battery cargar completemente maybe 4 o 5 horas if you are not using the computer (OFF) , and 12 a 13 horas if computer is ON. Don't leave it charged in the computer while computer is connected to the power socket, unless you also charging the battery.
Before charging it a second time, make sure it is completely drained. Some manufacturers (Toshiba) recommend to cycle the battery (charge, discharge) 2 or 3 times before using it.
Every month you should allow it to be drained.

Tu dois laisser la batterie se charger complètement. Cela prendra 4 à 5 heures si l'ordinateur est éteint, et 12 à 13 heures si l'ordinateur est en marche. Ne laisse pas la batterie dans l'ordinateur s'il est connecté à la prise, sauf si la batterie est en train d'être chargée. Certains constructeurs (Toshiba) recommandent de faire subir à la batterie 2 ou 3 cycles charge-décharge avant de pouvoir l'utiliser de façon autonome.

Chaque mois tu dois la laisser se décharger complètement.

Hope it helps.

Charger not charging battery and no powering lap amilo pro 3515

Dear dave670,
I wish I had a more positive answer for you, but unfortunately the symptoms you describe mean the power jack has gone bad. Very, VERY rarely, it may simply have come loose, and can be re-soldered. I would not count on this being the case.
You did not provide details on your laptop (make, model), but the remedies available to you, assuming your laptop is out of warranty, are:
1) Have power jack tested by a reputable repair location...and be prepared to have it replaced by them also;
2) If you or someone you know is comfortable and confident about replacing an item such as this, look for a reasonably priced replacement part and save money by doing it yourself or with help;
3) Purchase an external battery charger, and an extra battery, and run the laptop on batteries only, recharging them with the external charger.
I list all these because economic reality can slap us in the face, and you may not be able currently to afford the solution you SHOULD choose, which is to have the laptop repaired properly (because I have to tell you that power jack is almost certainly hosed).
The external charger option can at least buy you some time, and DIY repairs are always the most cost-effective if done right...but unfortunately the most expensive if FUBAR'd.
Wish I could be of more help, all best, cordwainer

What is the implication when swopping the motherboard of a acer l

Hello. Although this should cure the problem, there may be an issue with the battery connector within the laptop, causiong the battery not to charge. You have to perform more diagnostics on your unit before replacing the expensive motherboard. With a charged battery does the unit work? If no, then the problem could be a bad battery connector on the motherboard, or the foil-pattern connections around the battery connector terminals. Sometimes the damage is just around the battery connector terminals that connect it to the rest of the circuitry on the motherboard. I this case the cure could be a simple rewiring of these terminals to bypass the broken circuit board areas, costing you a few mere dollars, a little spare wire and time, or you may need to have this professionally performed if you're unable to do so. Most battery packs can have between 2-8 connections. If any of them get broken or stop working, different things can surface. I'd have someone look into this unit more indepth to correctly identify the problem, unless of course, you can find yourself another working motherboard really cheap. Good luck.

Packard Bell 4451 lap top will not power up.

check the back of the power connector to see if it is loose. I have known alot of situations were, if not carefully removed, that power connector in the can free itself from the sodder on the Mother board therefore you wont be able to charge the battery nor boot up. hope that helps
